Moisture your skin and the finger routinly. Try to avoid household substances which may cause dry cracked skin. Try to avoid detergents, perfumes, lotions which causes skin irritation.

First, are you well enough hydrated? Drinking plenty of fluids, especially water, helps solve dry skin issues. Second, is something environmental effecting your skin: if so can you either eliminate it or protect your hands from it? Third, apply vitamin E oil -- it is a little sticky so apply it at night and cover with bandaids if necessary.

You need some lotion. Also ask your DR. Excema can cause dry cracking sking and there is a steroid ointment for it. If you have contact dermatitis you need to find out what is causing the damage to your fingers. Make sure to protect your hands from heat and cold. Lotion will help depending on the cause.

The best treatment for dry fingers/hands is to use a good moisturizing lotion. Some good options for over the counter lotions are Cetaphil and Eucerin. Avoid the scented lotions as these are not great for hydrating the skin.
